another. is >> eliot: when you look back at bill clinton who we look at as one of the great politicians of the past 30 or 40 years, his sister soldier moment was when he went to the base and said i disagree with you about this. it showed a certain force of character that he would say no. and romney has never done that. >> in a sense you have to do what both clinton and obama did, and to some reagan did as well, which is to push back your base, and while at the same time say i'm just going this for the camera, i'm your map. all of the great politicians know how to do that. they have to deal with their base in that way. >> eliot: president obama got significant criticism on the first couple of years of his first term on issues such as immigration and lesbian/gay issues as well and then suddenly there when he needed the base to come back he came out in support of same-sex marriage. and that solidified him as yes, once again he is our candidate. >> that's right. >> eliot: there you see him as the nimble politician, and i think that has carried him forward. >> as with b
to young turks. mitt romney and president obama are competing for bill clinton's attention. >> a few words from bill clinton can do a man a lot of good. >> president clinton, thank you for your very kind introduction, although i have to admit i really did like the speech a few weeks ago a little bit better. >> all right romney in that speech had a whopper about special interest. you know what i love about this show? facts. we're going to bring you facts about his top donors. will blow your mind. hows that for fun? you know mitt romney's best friend caused this. >> it was a scramble in the end zone and then a split decision. one says touchdown another says no. >> this is comical to me, really. >> how is mitt romney related to that? i'm going to prove that. you sit right here and you'll see exactly how he's related. it turns out our government has been lying to us about civilians killed in broken strikes. i know, shocker. but this is the result. >> one of the things we heard from several people is that they didn't know what america was before drones and now what they know of america is drone
time. >> cenk: former democratic president t bill clinton is incredibly popular. even mitt romney said this. >> we have learned in this election season by the way, it is that a few words from bill clinton can do a man a lot of good. [ laughter ] >> cenk: now my guy, george w. bush, he did a terrible job. you don't like him very much. you want to see a lukewarm endorsement. here is george bush. >> i crawled out of the swamp. eight years was awesome, and i was famous and powerful and i have no desire for fame and power anymore. i'm a supporter of mitt romney. i hope he does well. >> cenk: god every time i laugh when i see that guy. who says being president was awesome, i had power and fame. you know what happens even though they have been hiding from bush right now george w. bush more popular than mitt romney. when you are losing to w, you are in big trouble, mitt! that's why you find yourself in the middle of the ring >> gavin: welcome to nine show. millions of peep tao*epb agers have treasured the come can go of age story the perks of being a wall flower
is uses some of his speech at the convention, and use some of bill clinton's speech. talk about the math. it just doesn't add up. how he is not being truthful with the american plan either he has a plan or he doesn't have a plan and now it is the time to explain it. mr. romney, you have an hour and a half to explain it. >> jennifer: that's what the president says. we have time explain it. oh, that would be so perfect. [ laughter ] >> jennifer: so mitt romney is claiming out of his mouth that he is going to -- he -- i think he said -- was going to be fact checking the president during the debates, real time? >> maybe he has a little something in his ear -- >> that didn't work very well it didn't. >> jennifer: describe the fact-checking experience in a presidential campaign during the debate. >> i think -- look what you have got of course out there is a lot of people tweeting and folks commenting and all of that going on outside. but he is not going to have a lot of notes and stuff with facts on them, i don't think. plus this president -- if he is not anything, he is ca
hd to barack obama? >> call bill clinton every morning. [ laughter ] >> jennifer: that's newt gingrich offering president obama some unsolicited advice. meanwhile the obama and romney campaigns are managing expectations. even the most ardent democrat would admit that president obama isn't the best debater. but according to beth myers . . . >> jennifer: and then president obama's top political advisor is just as glowing about mitt romney . . . they are so funny, my opponent he is abe lincoln and daniel webster all rolled into one. isn't that kind of weird hearing the campaign say such nice things about their opponents? believe me it's not going to last and it's all part of managing expectations before the debate. for more i'm joined by one of the country's foremost experts on the subject. samuel popkin who is a professor of political science at the university of san diego. he has worked on campaigns going back to the 1970s, and he is also the author of "the candidate." welcome back inside "the war room," profez or. >> it's a pleasure to be back with you gove
to the level of the performance. bill clinton you always got the feeling that he was very happy to be there. >> jennifer: it makes me smile thinking about it. you also say that governor rom any has a few of these flaws as well. he could be overly cautious he lacks spontaneity. he appears awkward and whiny. and he might be boring. if you were comparing the flaws of either one of those, which would you rather be? >> i think i would rather be obama. however, i do think they are fairly evenly matched. and in some ways there are similarities. i see both men as being men more about the intellectual side of things and not the emotional side of things. nay are both a little bit aloof. but the clip we looked at where mitt romney loses it about the rules, that was the most impassioned we have seen that. but isn't it interesting he is not getting passionate out of issues, he is getting passionate because he feels like somebody is cheating him out of his time. >> jennifer: exactly. i'm fascinated by this though because speaking of process, the romney camp has said they are going to b
has some brass as bill clinton would say. he tells george stephanopoulos he thinks the president is going to lie in the debates. >> i think the challenge that i'll have in the debate is that the president tends to -- how shall i say it, say things that aren't true. >> jennifer: all right. it isn't just the pot calling the kettle black it is also the pot's friends. mitt romney's surrogates have been repeating the same idea over the past 24 hours like karl rove who wrote in the "wall street journal," mr. obama has taken ordinary political differences between anything we've seen. every day it seems he attempts to disqualify his opponent through deliberate and undeniable falsehoods. and then when he was asked by jim acosta when romney was at cnn whether he had played fast and loose with the facts from time to time romney says this. >> we've been absolutely spot on and any time there's anything that's been amiss we correct it or remove it. >> jennifer: absolutely spot on. the audacity of this -- he's lying about lying.
mitt romney reminded me of bill clinton in the debates just because they that everything at him. all the debates seven people and he would withstand it. >> $10,000 bet that he's not terribly likable as an individual but he kept his cool in ways i admired. >> he would laugh off hahaha. >> i don't like the term entitlement. i think we need to say earned benefits. i don't think any president, i don't think they'll ever want to go down in history as the guy who got rid of social security. finally, mccain, the ace pilot who crashed two planes before he went to war is ready to go to war in the middle east. genius. >> lee writes to the big press show all you dumb as demcrates are going to loose. newt, you should be neutered, four exclamation points. he picked an illegal. >> he can spell democrats without an e. barack obama of course is an illegal immigrant from kenya who owns a time machine which he used to place a birth announcement in hawaii. >> if he did own a time machine, wouldn't the news of the time machine be more impressive than where you were born. >> exactly. the year 1962 whenev
